GI GL Guide

The effective control of blood glucose levels has always been unsatisfactory and thankfully contemporary scientific research has discovered a method, in the form of the Glycemic Index (GI) and Glycemic Load (GL), to assist greatly in the dietary control of  blood glucose levels. The purpose of this guide is to address this ignorance factor regarding blood glucose, which when uncontrolled, can result in major lifestyle diseases such  as overweight,  diabetes, high blood pressure and all the heart related diseases. As a consumer of food products, you need to be informed of the qualities of the food you eat and how it may affect your blood glucose response and over the long term, your health.
The authors, who are also responsible for the very popular “Eating for Sustained Energy” recipe book, have done an excellent job in  making this guide extremely practical, so that anyone will be able to use it. An introductory section explains the GI & GL concepts in layman’s language, and includes practical tips on how to make the GI & GL work for you. The GI, GL, fat, fibre, protein and energy value of the different food products is listed in various ways that would make it easy for you to do meal planning and shopping. It is invaluable as a reference guide for any heath professional or enthusiast. We can confidently state that the GI & GL Guide is  as comprehensive as it can be at this stage although several products, which we are aware of, still need to be tested and included in the lists. We have made it our responsibility to update it on an annual basis.
